I don't doubt that you love me and I would hope you don't either. The LL's are a good tool for intentionally focusing on the needs of someone but it isn't the end all or be all of showing love.

Ahhh goood point. Thanks :D

Amber, I love giving gifts. I do dislike getting them except for special occasions only. It's not about appearances. I'm not worried about being greedy or selfish. I just have issues about money and gifts are part of that.

I remember my husband telling me once that his top love languages were also touch, time, and service. Though I emailed him a link to the quiz because he doesn't remember telling me that. I'm am pretty sure that the quiz will show those as his top three, though I suspect service is higher than time. I think I would have been fine with someone who had different love languages. My sister is very different from me and yet I used the Love Languages for Singles book to help our relationship. (I started giving her more compliments, I gave her gifts when I could and still do, and try to always make time to chat or visit when I can.)

took the test again, and got pretty much the same result except that now Acts of Service and Words of Affirmation have flipped.

I think its kind of interesting, how this all works. I think I'm actually much more comfortable with telling someone how I appreciate them than being told I'm appreciated. I mean I *do* like being told that, and I do need to be told that, but it always elicits an "aw shucks" moment where I turn all red and then try to change the conversation to get the focus off me. I'm a weird and strange person.

I also really like to give gifts to people, but I'm much less concerned with getting them in return. so thats probably why its so low on my list.

but quality time and touch are must haves.
